Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

  • Random theory I have: Micheal afton was some sort of attempt by William to gain immortality. That's why he looks just like him and he can't die. He was either experimented on or created by William. So that he could gain immortality for himself in some way

  • Hmm. I feel like there's an element missing, but I'm not sure what. But the fact that "Jake's" dad's name is Evan is kinda weird. If the child's name is Evan and his brother is Michael and adult Evan describes Michael (in a way) as his brother, would one of them be fake just like the two Jakes? Just thinking about it kind of makes sense to me. I don't know, what do you think MatPat?

  • Theory! (Please no Hate i’m not sure on this theory to. Also sorry for bad grammar and spelling!) So you all know UCN. Maybe after the fire William was left at the fnaf 6 ruins.Then started to have those nightmares from Cassidy. (UCN) Then MAYBE Fazbear Entertainment was going to all of the previous locations. To take and scan all the remaining circuit boards. Because they are creating a VR game. Fazbear entertainment did say in the intro of Five nights at Freddy’s VR, “we have recreated many of these completely fictitious scenarios(lies) that you've been fed over the last several years, into a hilarious VR Game in the hopes that we can finally move past these childish ghost stories.” Obviously they were trying to cover up what really happened and during the process when they were scanning all the robot circuit boards and import them into the game. They probably came across Scraptrap, and took his Circuit board. In Fazbear frights black bird. During the Stichwraith story, where William was trying to drag Andrew back down with him and not let his soul rest. That showed us that a small part of William was in the robot the Stichwraith. So maybe, parts of William are in different places at once. An example of this is, maybe part of his soul is in Springtrap. Another in Scraptrap. So on. Maybe part of his soul was in that circuit board when Fazbear entertainment took it. That chould explain how William became glichtrap. The last part in the Stichwraith story, Afton became that huge robot field will agony. At the end of the security breach trailer (new one I think.) shows a robotic hand with claws on it but mostly purple. Maybe that in security breach William gets out of Glitchtrap, witht he help of Vanny. He probably got out from different robots filled with agony and soul energy. All being compressed or put together with William mainly in control. That’s probably how that happened. If you want to use the theory PLEASE credit me!! Thanks!

  • I just remembered the infamous “I'll put you back together.” line, what if the reason William/Glitchtrap is so eager to get Gregory to him is because Gregory is a robot recreation of the crying child. After all, they do have a very similar design. This means he was literally PUT BACK TOGETHER; however, the animatronics are trying to save him due to at least having some kind of knowledge as to who William is and what he does (kill children if that wasn't obvious). This could also mean that the crying child's name is possibly Gregory or at least a middle name, I think this could at least be one of or at least a possible reason as to why Vanny wants him.

A monument to the moment of your departure, frozen forever in July 1985?"

  • Ok guys I know this video is a week old but I have theory! So we know for a fact that the mall was being recently built in help wanted and it’s now finished. Now the question comes in, why are we at a mall in the first place? I have a simple yet interesting theory I believe that glitchtrap with all his influence sent vanny to the mall however using his power to get her a job as a security guard that way she won’t have a lot of suspicion towards her when he forces her to kidnap kids and kill them Gregory being one of them but escaping. So glitchtrap comes up with a new plan, let Vanessa search for him and find him but take over again and have Vanny take him! I know it’s a stretch but I honestly think it would be cool! Sry for the long rant 😅
